AFRS-V-Disc-5




The Army was the original source of the V-Disc records, with their first  being issued in October of 1943.The

Army’s V-Disc project provided a monthly 'care' package of music

specially recorded for troops overseas. Soldiers fighting a far-flung

war welcomed these musical snapshots of life back home.The V-Disc project actually began in June 1941,

six months before the United States' involvement in World War II, when

Captain Howard Bronson was assigned to the Army's Recreation and Welfare

Section as a musical advisor. Bronson suggested the troops might

appreciate a series of records featuring military band music,

inspirational records that could motivate soldiers and improve morale.

By 1942, the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) sent 16-inch, 33 rpm vinyl transcription discs

to the troops from eight sources: special recording sessions, concerts,

recitals, radio broadcasts, film sound tracks and commercial records.

Is there any chance you could update the torrent or the MP3 download links to include all the tracks? Right now they only include a handful.

Subject: Selections
It's not that selections are repeated it's just a different V-disc release with a different B-side.

You're starting to repeat selections, but that doesn't take away the super music from the past, from The Greatest Generation.
